Accident - Damage - Loss
What should I do in case of a breakdown or an accident?
In case of a breakdown or an accident you should contact the station where you picked up the car (all contact information will be provided the first day of the rental). You should explain the problem to our representative as clearly as possible. Help will be sent to your location as soon as possible. You should remain close to your vehicle until assistance arrives. If there is a problem that cannot be fixed on spot, a replacement vehicle will be provided.
If I lose the car key, what should I do?
In case of key loss, you should contact the local station where you picked up the car. Our agents will bring you a replacement key. Key loss is not covered by insurance, so extra charges will apply.
If I fill the tank with the wrong fuel, what should I do?
The day of car pick-up our agents will give you clear directions as to the type of fuel for your car. In case there is a mistake, please contact the local station where you picked up the car for further directions.
